Parts storage
« on: March 25, 2014, 10:21:00 am »
I just posted on my blog about the portable storage container I got for storing some of my parts:

I lucked out, because this bin was on sale for about $15, but on Amazon, it looks like the original price was around $50.

What do the rest of you use for organizing your components?

I get various containers, over time.

One container that I like is the 30 drawer cabinet that you get from jo-ann fabrics online store: http://www.joann.com/store-in-drawer-cabinet-w-30-transparent-drawers/1232891.html.  I generally wait for sales on the cabinet.  I just ordered another one for $23.

I have a few of these snapware containers, that are nice for bigger things like Arduino shields: http://www.joann.com/snapware-snap--n-stack-craft-organizer-small-square/7705841.html?green=2B77A25B-A091-5B1D-0E37-A8C8BC02AA20

I recently got some of these at Harbor Freight, but I haven't used them yet: http://www.harborfreight.com/19-bin-portable-parts-storage-case-93928.html#.UzLKkkBDvPE

At a under buck each shipped from Amazon PRIME a dozen of these are clear, stackable and hold a decent amount with attached lid

Product Dimensions:  7.9 x 6.5 x 4.5 inches
Origin: Made in US

This 'pencil box' one is handy too - but the price each is double:
